Thai massages are a popular wellness activity in Asia that offer a range of benefits for the mind and body. This ancient healing practice originated in Thailand and uses gentle pressure, stretching techniques, and acupressure to relax the whole body. Thai massages can relieve muscle pain and tension, increase blood circulation, and decrease levels of the stress hormone cortisol.
What’s more, by focusing on passive stretching and compression, Thai massages can also increase the range of motion in your joints and muscles. Whether you're looking to reduce stress or improve your overall well-being, a Thai massage is a must-try wellness activity during your vacation in Asia.
Indonesian massages, particularly Balinese massages, offer a range of benefits for the body and soul. Balinese massage is an approach to massage developed in the Indonesian province of Bali, with influence from the traditional medicine systems of India. Balinese massage uses therapeutic herbal oils delivered with traditional massage techniques and has many similarities to Ayurvedic massages.
Balinese massages are highly therapeutic and will leave you feeling re-balanced, re-energized and relaxed. Enjoy all the benefits of a Balinese massage from the comfort of your beautiful Bali villa - simply let us know what you’re craving and your concierge will tailor a dedicated wellness package for your trip.
Originating in India, yoga is an ancient practice that offers a range of benefits for the mind, body and soul. A group of physical, mental and spiritual practices, yoga aims to control the body and calm the mind, bringing health and balance to an individual’s mental, physical and emotional health.
The health benefits of regular yoga practice include lowering stress, improving flexibility, balance, and strength, and reducing the risk of chronic diseases. If you want to focus on your health and well being then this is the perfect activity for your next vacation. Whether you're a beginner or an experienced practitioner, your dedicated concierge can arrange in-villa yoga sessions with the best local teachers during your vacation in Koh Samui, Phuket or Bali.
Take your fitness to a new level with a series of Muay Thai sessions. Originating in Thailand, this impressive martial art offers endless benefits, both for your strength and cardiovascular capacities. Known as the "art of eight limbs" due to the combined use of fists, elbows, knees, and shins, Muay Thai teachings also emphasise discipline and respect for others, making it a valuable addition to any wellness routine.
Whether you're a beginner or a martial arts pro, private Muay Thai sessions are a great way to improve your physical fitness and overall well-being. Simply speak to your personal concierge to find out more.
Meditation is a practice that involves focusing your mind using a combination of mental and physical techniques. It can be used as a tool to enable individuals to live more mindfully and become more present. There are endless different applications for meditation: some people meditate to relax, others to reduce anxiety and stress and others to change their usual thinking patterns. Some people even use meditation to help them kick a bad habit, such as quitting smoking.
Whatever your goal is, meditation is an important addition to a well-rounded wellness routine. Even just knowing a few basic techniques is very beneficial, especially in today’s fast-paced world. If you’re seeking a wellness vacation, we would certainly recommend incorporating meditation into your schedule.

Reiki is rooted in the philosophy that one person's transfer of energy can stimulate healing energy in another, and it is based on the idea that an unseen universal life-force energy flows through all living things.
